Lake Level:This is the first week in about a month that the lake level has remained status quot.
This means that the what you experienced 4th of July weekend is pretty much what you will experience this weekend.
Stump Ally and Mosquito bay are still negotiable with about 9 feet of water.
The Sand bar at Northampton is waist deep as is the Porper Road/Kunkle Point sand bar.
You are stuck to the high points at Sand island and SW point on Scout Island (remember you need a permit for Scout Island)
We need the lake to go down about 3 feet for the optimal mix of beach and boating, and they are letting quite a bit of water out, so It shouldn't be long!
This should be a great weekend to check out the Eagles. There is a family by Scout Island and another by Mead Islands.
Weather report promises a phenomenal weekend for weather.
All the courtesy docks are in good shape!
Water Temperature:is 74 Degrees at the surface. It has gone down a bit as the nights have been cooler.
Fishing:is very good!
Bass and Walleye are biting
Perch are steady
Northerns are falling off a bit (25" or so)
Carp are Biting
Haven't heard much about trout (no one is bragging or complaining!)
Tip of the Week:
Put your vehicle in Park after launching your boat (This means before you get out of the car!)
